Three Manchester United fans have been injured after an "attack" in Europa League final host city Gdansk, Poland, as the club has offered support.

The supporters, who are in the country for the club's last match of the season against Villarreal, were attacked by locals in a bar last night.

It came as fights reportedly broke out in the city centre, with some fans having possessions stolen, according to the BBC.

But United did act to help their supporters, with 2,000 of their fanbase travelling to Poland for the final.

A statement from the club reads: "Club staff were assisting a number of United fans in Gdansk last night and today after an incident where some of our supporters were attacked outside a bar in the city."

Fighting reportedly broke out at a bar, with wine bottles and glasses being smashed as well as chairs being thrown.

And these took place with locals as there are no tensions between United and Villarreal supporters.

United are in Poland to face Villarreal as they look to lift the Europa League trophy for the first time since 2017.
